    i love that Ally reimburses ATM fees! However I was wondering, does Ally have any agreements with any national ATM networks (Allpoint, Star, NYCE, etc) so there is no ATM fee up front? If not, is this something that we might be able to expect sometime in the future?

    Ally needs remote scan deposit before it can be considered a best. I was told months ago Ally was looking into this, but I heard nothing since then. Is this still vapor ware?

      We’re still working on it, Bam! Definitely in the pipeline. No worries there; it will happen.

    I was looking for a new bank to start my life over again while going through an ugly divorce. I found Ally Bank on the web site. They were highly rated and had no costs and they even pay me interest on my checking account. Once I got set up with Ally, I have been very pleased and now I understand why the commercials about Ally always say “I Love My Bank”.

    You will not be disappointed with Ally Bank.

    Thank you as I start over,

    Shortly after I won the lottery, I was on the road headed for Vegas. I pulled over at an old diner in the middle of death valley. There was a sticker on the window that said free WiFi. I asked the waitress for a burger and fries. I whipped my shiny new ipad and I googled CD rates. I found my way to and that’s where I fell in love with Ally.

    I never did make it to Vegas. Instead of gambling my fortune, I keep it safe it Ally.

      Ha! That’s a great story, John, and we would never, of course, doubt its authenticity. And cheers on the love. Bryan over there only has kind things to say to us on Twitter.

    Hiya! Y’all are ranked pretty highly in my book as I look for a new bank to do my checking/saving with, but I was wondering if you’d considered taking a page out of (nameless, faceless other bank’s) book and thought about charging interest instead of a flat fee on overdrafts?

    No need to answer my question above, if you were ever going to. I found a Bank that offers an overdraft line of credit with no fees.
